|Location:||Burdwan-713101, West Bengal, India|
|About artist:||I am a visual artist presently living and working in a small provincial town called Burdwan situated in the eastern part of India, which is popularly known as the “RICE BOWL”, as most of the landscape of this region are covered with green paddy field. |
I moved to Vadodara at early age to accomplish formal art study from Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University year 1989-1995. Since the beginning of my artistic carrier I have been practicing both two dimensional as well as three dimensional medium for the exploration of my creative urge. In the case of painting I have chosen the water colour medium with the amalgamation of both tempera and British transparent technique with the stylization of deep rooted Indian miniature painting but in modern context and subjectivity .the application of multidimensional and multi -viewed perspective are the evidence of it .
After finishing art education I spent few vital year in industrial cosmopolitan city Ahmedabad , I joint there in Kanoria Centre For Arts as a scholar and later as an in-charge in the Department of Sculpture. During that period I was invited to take few classes as a visiting faculty in National Institute of Design, Paldi.
In the mean time; Madras presently known as Chennai where I started painting seriously, the beautiful colour and nature of the Bay of Bengal inspired me a lot to start to explore the medium water colour. The cityscape and the cosmopolitan city culture gradually come to occupy the most of the part of two dimensional surfaces.
Other than painting and sculpting, photography and modern architecture is the field which give me a lots of inspiration and satisfaction to reveal my creative urge and activity
Presently I have been associated with College of Art & Design, Burdwan University as a teacher since 2004.
|About art:||Dibyendu Dey’s paintings cross boundaries: they acknowledge the time-honored styles of Indian visual arts, while also presenting an understated, yet powerful statement on contemporary culture. Dey lives in Burdwan, West Bengal, a city of multiple cultures, including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam; a city of mosques and skyscrapers. The kaleidoscopic effect of Burdwan is viscerally present in Dey's works, particularly "Railway Station" and "Terrace Restaurant," whose seemingly tranquil figures hearken back to the traditional Madhubani and Rajput styles. Instead of mythic or royal figures, however, Dey’s subjects are crowded together in disoriented urban tableaus, their boundaries melting, their realities transparent. Dey creates visual fields of spatial and temporal shards, and his works are the portraits of individuals caught in a dynamic within themselves, with each other, and with their shared cultural histories.|
